    John Carpenter & Kurt Russell to "Escape from Earth"?

    According to http://bloody-disgusting.com/index.p...plate=newsfull


    It has been 25 years since Kurt Russell made his first appearance as the bad ass Snake Plissken in John Carpenter's Escape from New York, now it looks like Russell and Carpenter are teaming up once again, this time to leave Earth. Escape From Earth is the title of the third entry to the franchise, according to our anonymous scooper. Inside you can read the unconfirmed scoop, which we'll be looking into this week...

    "A major meeting was held at Paramount last week with both John Carpenter and Kurt Russell in attendance. The topic -- preparing for a third entry in the Snake Plissken chronicles entitled Escape From Earth.

    Apparently, Carpenter completed a script for the project eight years ago but the studio has now taken an interest in it after Russell demanded doing it before signing on with the studio for a three picture deal.

    Although the screenplay is being kept under tight wraps, I'm told (by another anonymous) who was lucky enough to take a peek at the first thirteen pages that the script takes off immediately where the previous left off and features our planet en-route to Armageddon.

    It looks as though Carpenter will push-off the production of Psychopath with Titan Productions and collaborator Todd Farmer in order to ready this entry for a 2008 release.In the first film, which takes place in 1998, the US President crashes into Manhattan, which is now a giant max. security prison, a convicted bank robber is sent in for a rescue.
    My fingers are crossed.

    For what it was worth, I enjoyed both previous "Escape" movies. I think the idea of Escaping from Earth could work, although there needs to be a very good explanation for how something survived the EMP satillite that was supposed to send humanity back to the days prior to electricty.

    My fingers are crossed as well.

    Will Isaac Hayes reprise his role as "The Duke"? If so, I'm in.

    Well, his character did die afterall.

    It's just as well though. I read somewhere that Carpenter planned on including a mad scientologist as the villain this time.

    Maybe Carpenter will bring back Hayes as The Duke's scientology-loving twin brother The Earl.

    Hey guys, sorry to say but this rumor is just that, a rumor. This was the reply I got from Carpenter's assistant:

    Hello Michael,

    Angie here.

    I have just shown John your email. His response was "I have no idea". As you can tell by his response, this is all rumor.

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    Sincerely,
    Angie
    Oh well.
